Students who are first-time borrowers of Federal Direct Loans are required to complete entrance counseling before their loan proceeds can be released.
Be sure and select Entrance Counseling and not Financial Awareness Counseling.
For future reference:
Student borrowers who are about to graduate, transfer out or simply stop out for a semester must complete exit counseling. Official USI academic transcripts are not released until the exit counseling requirement is completed.
